Oral Surgery in Lombard, Bolingbrook, Downers Grove and Wheaton

At Grove Dental, your oral surgery — in Downers Grove, Wheaton, Bolingbrook or Lombard — will be performed by an experienced oral surgeon who will understand your situation. We’ll take every precaution to ensure your comfort, all while treating your specific need. Some of the oral surgeries we handle include:

  • Tooth extractions
  • Dental implants
  • Wisdom teeth removal
  • Tissue biopsies

Dental Implants

One of the most common methods of tooth replacement, dental implants are essentially replacements for the damaged root parts of a tooth. Dental implants have been proven to have high success rates. An implant consists of an artificial tooth root and a crown. Benefits include:

  • Restores complete function
  • No visible difference from other teeth
  • No chance of decay
  • Replaces a missing tooth without hindering surrounding teeth

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Whether it’s because they’re impacted and unable to grow properly or because they just have potential to cause problems for other teeth, wisdom teeth often need to be removed. Typically, the best time to remove wisdom teeth is before they cause problems — the longer problems continue, the more damage that can occur. Benefits of early wisdom teeth removal include:

  • Uncomplicated removal
  • Prevention of periodontal disease in that area
  • Prevention of pain, infection or cyst formation
  • Eliminates potential crowding on other teeth

On-Staff Oral Surgeon

Our state-of-the-art practice has oral surgeons on staff who are extremely gentle and proficient in their treatment. Like all our specialists, they work closely with the general dentists in order to coordinate your care during every step.
